About This Quiz

Mermaids may be a myth, but these sea creatures have inspired men and women to create many types of aquatic hair and makeup looks. Some of these are vibrant and shimmery, while others are more subtle in detail. But you don't need to be a beauty expert to take our aquatic quiz, because we're going to focus on a few classic mermaid looks today!

A mermaid look is generally divided into two categories: hair and makeup. So ask yourself this: How does your personality reflect these types of beauty choices? For instance, if you're low-maintenance with life, then a pretty side ponytail with aquatic hair clips should do the trick. Or maybe your personality is more suited to an elegant updo with some sunset-inspired makeup. And if you really want to go all out with aquatic hair and makeup choices, you could always paint some fish scales, sand dollars, mermaid tails or seashells on parts of your face! 

But being a mermaid isn't just about the outward beauty, because your inner personality plays a role, too. So if you're curious about what unique mermaid look is right for you, then it's time for you to take our aquatic quiz right now!
